Rick Trembles Collectible poster for ‘A COSMIC CHRISTMAS’

In honour of our upcoming screening of Nelvana’s 1977 holiday classic A COSMIC CHRISTMAS – which will be making a rare big screen appearance at The Royal Cinema in Toronto on Dec 13th at 2pm along with a bevy of other seasonal specials and ephemera – Montreal-based cartoonist Rick Trembles (GOOPY SPASMS, MOTION PICTURE PURGATORY) turns his pen to a re-imagining of director Clive Smith’s psychedelic xmas special in this striking promo poster. And since Clive Smith will be at the screening in person, maybe you can even convince him to sign one!

This screening is part of The Royal’s new monthly KID POWER series, named after our book which will be for sale at every screening (or you can buy it in our store HERE), and is co-presented by the Toronto Animated Image Society.

For more info about the screening, see The Royal Cinema’s website HERE.
